Christmas is filled with thrilling wonders and the exchange of lovely gifts. The joy of the season is awesome and we pray it remains with us through the New Year. Our hearts swell with deepest gratitude for the spirit of sharing care, happiness and love.
Christmas is also a hard time of year for those who are grieving. Not only does the festivity of the season remind the bereft of all they have lost, but it’s a time for getting together with loved ones, and the loss of that one special person seems even more unfathomable when you are alone or alone in a crowd.
When the loss is of a child, there is a depth of grief behind the mask and the silence of a parent’s face that we need to see and acknowledge. We need to extend a hand of genuine and continued friendship and love and grasp the hand of those who are hurting and who so badly need comfort.
The Little Fighters Cancer Trust would like to send out a special message of love to all of our Little Fighter Families –
To those of you who have a child still battling cancer, we wish You and Yours a Peaceful, Joyous Festive Season and Good Health for your Little Fighter.
To those of you who have lost a child to cancer – we understand how sad this time of the year is for you, as Christmas is all about the children. No words can heal the pain in your heart; no wound can be as deep as yours, but please know that we hold you close in our hearts and send you loads of love.
Please know that we will be thinking of you all and sending out special prayers and loving thoughts to you and your family.
May You Always
Faith, hope and charity
May we always have these
Not just at Christmas time
But all the year throughout.
We tend to have more faith
More hope and charity
During the season
But can we keep it always
May you always have
Something to hope for
Faith in something bigger than you
And, dreams that come true.
And may you always
Share with others
Your blessings as a result
Of your hopes, faith, and dreams.
